Yarn Along

Brrrr...winter is coming! It's getting pretty frosty here at the moment. There was even snow on the nearby hills yesterday (which happens only a few times a year, and it's not officially winter yet!)

Please excuse the street light and roof of the house across the road. That streetlight annoyed me so much when I was taking the photo, but there wasn't much I could do about it!

What have I been knitting and reading at the moment then? Well, I'm a big audiobook fan and I'm currently listening to 'The Persimmon Tree' by Bryce Courteney. I'm really enjoying it actually, though I shouldn't sound surprised as I do love his writing.

The knitting - how are my socks coming along? Not bad compared to last week, right? I finished the first sock not long after the blog entry and I tried it on. Oh my! I love it! I can see how people get addicted to this sock knitting thing!

It might not look like an awful lot of knitting either, but in the last week I've also released a new pattern and I've whipped up a new hat for my kindy-aged child. This is the Mimipita Earflap Hat, it's a free pattern and I really love the construction of it, though the sizing and translation have a few errors. But I do plan to whip up another and make a few changes

And I think that's enough for the week, right?
Thanks for leaving me a comment! Go on, leave me one! I do so love to read them? Have you read any Bryce Courteney books, or can you recommend a great hat pattern? 


  1. Great hat! Great socks, you have been busy! I love Bryce Courtney, and have a few on my bookshelf if you ever want to borrow them :D

    1. Why thank you! Yes, I have a few too, though as much as I love actual books, I'm doing a better job of collecting them these days!

  2. Good week. And for what it's worth, the street light is very arty :)

  3. Nice hat pattern! My little man needs a new one made and that looks like a good one.

  4. i wish i had a little one to knit for, your patterns are darling! and i love the socks!
